  1. Hi Roger, Thanks for the compliment. The photo was taken in early September, somewhere high up in Italy. I cant be too exact as we were on the Club Triumph 10 Country run and at times it was all bit of a blur but bloody good fun. I would say the cars colour is an Old English White but cant be more exact than that as the car underwent a renovation in the late 90's and I have only had the car for 14 years.

    Wow!

    Link may interest a few people here. http://www.greatbritishclassiccars.com/cars/triumph-tr4-2-for-sale/ i am off to polish my 4 ......oh by the way it’s nowt to do with me.
  3. Hi Nigel, 

    i see that you are looking for a hardtop for your 4.

    if it is only the hardtop and you have the rear screen I may be able to help you. I also have a 4 with rear screen and an aluminium hardtop, but I also have a good steel hardtop which i am willing to let go at the right price. I am not selling it off cheap as they are so hard to come by now, and I was planning on refurbishing it as an alternative for myself. 

    It will need to be refurbished but it is all there, and is not at all rusty. It also has the rear stainless steel trim. If you want a photo I can sort that. As I say I am not selling it off cheap so I would be asking for £1,200.

    cheers

  6. Hi Pete, I brought a set of ARE magnesium wheels back from the states and had them crack tested and refinished by Ian Jemison. http://www.ianjemison.co.uk/ I was a little concerned with putting a set of original mag ARE wheels on my TR but the crack testing gave them a clean bill of health and the finish that was applied stopped all further corrision. They still look as good as they did when finished and have done @18K since. Ian Jemison offers great advice from my experience. Hope this helps, Chris

    I placed an order with Don Hoods after being quoted a lead time of 4 to 5 weeks. We are now 9 weeks in and unsure as to when delivery will be.

  10. Thanks Stuart, Thats great, I can get it to the base of the slope but with a little bit of warmth applied I should be able to find that extra 1/2" Many thanks.
  11. Thanks Stuart, Foolishly I havent yet got the rear sealing rubber which as you say would strongly indicate where to finish the vinyl. I will pause what I am doing and order said item
  12. Gentlemen, As the title indicates I am trimming a hardtop and rearscreen this afternoon, I am taking my time and everything is going fine. I am however pondering how far to pull the vinyl round or where to finish the vinyl at the rear of the hard top. Would anybody be able to forward or publish a photo of how this should be finished for my clarification/sanity? Thanks Chris
